Amazon Expands Palm-Scanning Payment Tech to 65 More Whole Foods Locations

By TechCrunch, August 12, 2022

Amazon plans to expand its Amazon One palm-scanner payment technology to more than 65 Whole Foods stores in California.

A part of the company’s mission to use “contactless” technology that makes it faster to pay, the technology employs machine learning to create a palm signature for each customer and linking it to a payment card at the kiosk or point-of-sale station, allowing them to complete transactions by holding their hand over a scanner.

The images captured by the kiosk are encrypted and sent to a server to match to the customer, but are not stored.
